Patron injured after pickup truck crashes into Papa Gino’s


A pickup truck crashed into the Papa Gino’s Pizzeria at 675 Crescent St. Saturday afternoon, breaking open a brick wall and sending two people, including the driver, to the hospital, Brockton police said. According to Brockton police Sergeant Scott Besarick, a 26-year-old male patron was taken by ambulance to Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital with injuries that “didn’t appear [to be] life-threatening.” The driver, John Veiga, a 73-year-old Brockton resident , also went to the hospital, but did not appear to be injured, said Besarick. The driver was cited by police for failure to stay in marked lanes, and police sent a request to the Registry of Motor Vehicles asking that his license be suspended, Besarick said.
